Here’s what we want in our Easter basket

Of course we want beer in our Easter basket! We stopped by Local Baskit to check out the selection, and we found some Love Me Long Time from Throwback Brewery in Portsmouth and some Stoutella, a Nutella-flavored stout, by Knee Deep Brewing in California.  (JON BODELL / Insider staff)

The go-to last-minute gift for any occasion that has the highest potential for complicating friendships: scratch tickets. They're always popular gifts, but what happens when, sooner or later, you give your in-law a ticket that wins a million bucks? That's a problem we'd love to be on the receiving end of.

Now that it's finally warming up, we're already starting to think about the pool. But we won't want to get too wet, so we found this excellent pizza slice pool float at Dick's Sporting Goods, of all places. If we found seven friends who also had them, we could make one, big floating pool pizza! Doesn't get more Easter than that. (JON BODELL / Insider staff)

While poking around Dick's Sporting Goods, these TaylorMade M1 series drivers caught our attention. And at only $499.99 each, we decided to go for it so we can start setting records at Beaver Meadow (record-worst scores, that is). (JON BODELL / Insider staff)

If we're going to be going golfing, we'll need some tees. We found this pack of Red Sox tees at Dick's Sporting Goods for a considerably cheaper price than the clubs. (JON BODELL / Insider staff)

Candy in your Easter basket is great and all, but we're pretty macho over here and we prefer to only eat meat. That's why we were excited to find quite a selection of bacon jerky at one of our old haunts, Ocean State Job Lot.  (JON BODELL / Insider staff)

The Easter Bunny is always so busy – especially on Easter. That’s why we decided to give him the day off this year. Instead, we handled our own Easter basket. Here’s some of the stuff we picked out. Above: With a new baseball season just getting under way, we decided to upgrade the ol' TV set with this bad boy, a Samsung 4K Ultra HD curved smart TV we found at Best Buy. Don't worry – we have a really, really big Easter basket this year. Top left: Of course we were going to put beer in our basket, and we stopped by Local Baskit to browse the selection of craft brews. We liked Love Me Long Time by Throwback Brewery in Portsmouth (left) and Stoutella, a Nutella-flavored stout, from Knee Deep Brewing Co. in California. Left: There’s no better way to lounge in a pool than by floating on a huge slice of pizza, which we found at Dick’s Sporting Goods. Left below: Also at Dick’s, we stumbled upon these TaylorMade M1 series drivers, which we picked up because they were only $499.99. Bottom left: Candy on Easter is great and all, but we prefer meat. Luckily, there’s a nice selection of bacon jerky at Ocean State Job Lot.

Since our devices rule our lives, we decided it was time to upgrade everybody's most important possession: the cell phone. Our old phones were pretty obsolete, so we went for none other than the brand-new, just-unveiled Samsung Galaxy S8, the world's greatest technological achievement in personal electronic form.

This year, we decided to give the Easter Bunny the day off for the big holiday. Instead, we went and did some shopping for ourselves. After all, if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself. Here’s a little sampling of some of the Easter basket items we picked out for ourselves.
